Day 16, October 9th
To mark the halfway point of my time in France, I decided to have a day filled with nothing but relaxation. This means that I stayed in the apartment, played Final Fantasy IV and overall, just spent time chatting with friends online and all that fun stuff.
It’s also the reason I didn’t blog yesterday – to enjoy the relaxation.
Aside from that, nothing happened. It was a normal, well-spent day of peace.
Day 17, October 10th
Worked passed easily enough, like any other day. What happened after work, however – horrible.
I wanted to go to the mall to get something to cook for dinner, since Melanie would be exercising with a friend. She gave me directions and I left. The directions: First left, then straight, straight, straight and more straight.
I couldn’t find it, so I headed back to the apartment. By the time I found the apartment, I walked towards it from the opposite sideof the side I left from – talk about a detour. Having figured out where I was, I tried one more time, then after fifteen minutes of walking headed back.
Luckily, I remembered the way back that time. I entered the apartment, grabbed my month-ticket for the tram and walked ten minutes to the nearest stop, rode fifteen minutes to the city center, headed over to Subway, bought food, walked back, another fifteen minute ride, ten minute walk and then made it into the apartment at 09:00 pm.
By that time, all I wanted to do was have my dinner, so I ate. The last I had eaten was at 12:30 during my break.
Needless to say, that was an… eventful evening. Not one I’d like to repeat.
Melanie said she’ll walk with me to the mall tomorrow.
That sounds like a plan.
